As graduation crawls closer for the seniors of 2013, the dollar amount for college goes up. Whether it’s $100 or a full ride, scholarships will change a college student's life.
“School is too expensive,” senior Aaliyah Johnson said. Many students said this. You are not paying just for your education, you’re paying for dorm rooms and books. On top of that, students pay for new clothes and food. Although scholarships won’t pay for your wants, they will pay for your school needs.
“Scholarships can also be organizations that help others and also make us aware of others who help,” senior Brittany Beckette said.
Scholarships can help a college student dramatically. Make your college debt decrease even a little by simply writing an essay or helping your community.

As admission letters come rolling in, it’s hard on high school seniors to decide where to go. To leave or not to leave, that is the question.
“I’d like to stay. There are lots of factors to stay or to go,” Senior Steph Lincoln said. But what are those factors? For many of us, it’s family. For others, it’s friends. Some want to ‘get away’ and ‘start a new life.’ There are some students who say that it does not matter how close or far away they are, if the education is good, that’s where they will go.
Money place a big factor. Most schools out of the state you live in makes the student pay out-of-state tuition which could get pricey.
Junior Jared Warner said, “Volleyball.” For some students, they can get a scholarship from schools for a certain sport. This plays a big factor in a student's decision.
In the end, it is the student’s decision and only they can make it. The question we must ask ourselves is, to leave or not leave. It’s up to you.
